In 1985 Boston passed a regulation requiring that contractors hire at  
least: 50% of its employees from among residents of Boston, 25% of  
people of color, and 10% women. However, this is not happening and  
Boston is not adequately enforcing the law, letting contractors get  
away with whatever they want.

Here is the actual wording of the ordinance from the city's website:

in the Mayor's Executive Order of July, l985 entitled The Executive
